Give a young person like Alfred #aChancetoThrive
At Dream a Dream, we equip young people from vulnerable backgrounds with the life skills needed to thrive in this fast changing world. Life skills are essential skills such as communication, decision making, and following directions that many of us take for granted, but not everyone has the access to learn. With life skills, our young people, no matter where they come from, can change their scripts and thrive. Before coming to Dream a Dream, Alfred worked multiple part-time jobs and spent whatever little free time he had left studying. After joining a Computer and Life Skills course, Alfred discovered that he had untapped leadership qualities, especially the ability to take initiative. “Shivu, our facilitator, was the one who changed our lives. He made me understand who I am.” Now, Alfred is studying Business Administration at Valencia College in Florida through the Community College Initiative. “My aim is to complete the course with full marks and come back and help the people and some of my friends with either their studies or their work. That’s my main aim, to help other people thrive.” Donate now, and help Dream a Dream enable and empower more young people like Alfred. With your donation, you can give young people from vulnerable backgrounds #achancetothrive.
